BTJ 6/15 - Focus: A year into SECA enforcement

The introduction of the Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA) has been regarded as a radical change for the maritime transport sector running its business in Europe.

The new, much more restrictive, 0.1% limit of sulphur content in marine fuel was causing significant concerns among shipping operators, particularly container and ro-ro & ferry companies with fixed services in SECA, years before the clocks hit the terrifying date of January 1 st, 2015.

And the miracle happened!, by Dr. Maciej Matczak, Head of Actia Forum’s Consulting Department

 

The 6/2015 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Focus section features also:

  • Ship-owners on SECA, by Maria Deligianni, Policy Advisor - Maritime Safety, Environment and Offhore, ECSA

After one year of implementing low sulphur limits in Europe's Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA), the European ship-owners can safely speak of a strict and pragmatic enforcement, without a major economic impact, a modal shift to land-based transport modes, or loss of volume, mainly due to the drop in fuel prices. However, unclarity still surrounds the use of certain compliance methods, while financing alternative compliant technologies represents a major challenge.
